    Talking Arrived At Last!

    Well, I ordered her on the 28th Feb and she arrived on 22nd May.

    I have already done 950 miles and she is going fine. The sports switch is great. Completely changes how the car responds to your foot, steering and handling. (takes a bit of getting used to though)

    It's the 1.9 CDTi 150 Exclusiv and the trim levels have gone up a bit. Now both driver and passenger have lit vanity mirrors, there are map reading lights and the sunglasses holder. Also you now have rear seat lighting too.

    Had to take her back to the VX Stealers as there was a burning oil smell but this turned out to be the guys at the factory getting over excited with the under seal.

    I do have one issue, there is no switch for the ESP. I know it has it as the display lights on the dash, but there is only a grey blank where it should be
    I did ask the dealer but he forgot ( and I did ) to answer my question.

    I also asked for the trip computer to be activated but he only has made the trip timer available on the tab next to the audio now. But to be fair he didn't charge to activate it and I didn't want to make an **** of myself complaining about something he did for free.

    Quick fag packet calc on fuel, as I went to Wick this week, and got 50mpg

    You'll have to get hold of a TC button and see if it works!

    What tyres did it come with Stu?

    The sports button has the same effect on the accellerator as a tuning box, it responds much quicker and reaches max output without putting your foot flat down.

    Mine won't have the sunglasses holder... the sunroof will take up that space

    Don't know, LMF do them though.

    Are you aware of all the problems with NCT5s?

    I told the dealer, if it turns up with NCT5s then the will have to change them.
